Scribbles Love

One of the great things about the on-line quilt world, is meeting new people and discovering new talent.  I discovered Sheril thought the Blogger's Quilt Festival, and began to follow her blog.  Much to my delight, she has a new passion that I love, perhaps more than the original post.  Scribblesone launched with these.

It was love at first sight.  These are my boring-staff-meeting-horrible-lecture-doodles on steroids.  Working on the "it never hurts to ask" concept, I contacted Sheril and asked if  she'd consider doing a commission piece.  OK, maybe it was so I'd feel like a patron of the arts like the European aristocracy... but I asked if she'd consider doodling out a dragonfly for me in this style...since I love them so.  Being the amazing person that she is...she agreed!!! And here is Dragonfly1.

This bad-boy is hand-drawn on an 11" piece of fabric in permanent ink.  What's even better (if that's even remotely possible) is that I have permission to use the pattern for other quilt inspirations!!!  YUMMMM!!! (My UFO/WIP list is KILLING ME!)  I so want to turn this into a pieced/appliqued quilt.  Meanwhile, back at the ranch.... I asked Sheril about a 4 Scribble dragonfly  series....(I gotta get this done before the whole world sees how freaking wonderful she is, don't you know.)
Here's what will be coming my way next pay day...
Sheril is my total motivation to finish those WIP/UFO's.  I so desperately want this to become a quilt that it makes me weep.
